​Barcelona goalkeeper Marc-André ter Stegen has admitted he is relaxed about his future after confirming that talks are underway with the club over a new contract.

Speaking to ​Mundo Deportivo, the goalkeeper confessed that he intends to remain at ​Barcelona for the foreseeable future and he is in no rush to force through a new deal.


"I have two years left on my contract. My family and I are very happy here, we are at home," he said. "The intention is to continue [at Barcelona], the philosophy and the idea go quite well together. 


"At the moment there are conversations, but nothing serious, because there is no hurry on my part.

"I am very focused on my work, we have a few difficult weeks coming up and we want to win. I leave the whole contract subject to my agent, who is the one who is dedicated to it and who informs me of everything."


Since joining in the summer of 2014, ​Ter Stegen has managed 221 appearances for Barcelona, helping the club to four ​La Liga titles and the 2014/15 ​Champions League.


One of Barcelona's key objectives for the season is to challenge for European glory once more. Having crashed out of the Champions League in embarrassing fashion to both Roma and ​Liverpool in the last two years, Ter Stegen confessed that they are determined to avoid the same fate when they meet ​Napoli on Tuesday.

"Every year the Champions League is in focus, it is a very good competition that we all have the dream of going far in and achieving something that is very difficult," he said. 


"We have a game that will be very difficult but we know that we are going to give everything we have to get a good result and finish the work at Camp Nou. We'll take it one step at a time."
